The ABA Section of Adminstrative Law and Regulatory Practice will be hosting its annual administrative law conference on November 19-20, 2020. This is the AdLaw Section’s signature event, and it attracts hundreds of government officials, scholars, and practitioners with two packed days of panels and programming.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, the conference will be fully online this year, which is disappointing because we won’t be able to network and chat in person. But it’s also exciting because the conference will be able to reach an even larger audience than normal.
We are currently looking for panel proposals, with the submission deadline being July 6, 2020. Here is the packet with materials on how to submit. And here is a message from the conference organizers (to the panelists from last year’s conference):
We, Andrew Emery and Susan Prosnitz, are again co-chairing the ABA’s 2020 Fall Administrative Law Conference. Thank you for your wonderful support in making the 2019 Fall Administrative Law Conference a great success. The 2019 conference generated the largest attendance in the history of the conference and most enthusiastic feedback we have seen in our years of chairing the conference. That success was due to you. And with your help we want to make the conference an even greater success in 2020.
In these extraordinary circumstances, we are making plans to hold a virtual live Administrative Law Conference on November 19-20, 2020. We invite you to propose a panel for the Fall Conference. We have summarized recommendations made last year by attendees and include a list of ideas and themes to inspire you, though we invite you to develop your own ideas as well. We expect to offer up to eighteen panels on various subjects, in addition to our traditional Developments panels.
We generally receive more proposals than we can accommodate. When making our final selections, preference will be given to panel proposals that are more complete. Please think about novel topics of general administrative interest (not narrow substantive fields), that include speakers from both the private and public sectors and offer diverse views. The panels will need to identify written CLE material to be provided to attendees (including at least 20 pages of new material per panel). If you are interested in organizing a panel, please complete the attached panel proposal template. We must receive the completed form with all information included by July 6, 2020. Our contact information is below, so feel free to contact us or Anne Kiefer if you have questions. Due to current circumstances email communication is best. We very much appreciate your time and effort devoted to crafting a panel proposal.
Again, you can download the PDF panel proposal materials here. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions about potential panel topics, panelists, etc.
